    I have been working at J. C. Penney part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Love working here! Has taught me so much and grown my artistry. If you are just looking to work somewhere for a makeup discount then go to Ulta. If you are serious about starting a career in the beauty industry SiJCP offers you a BEAUTIFUL foundation to do so!

    Cons

    Credit card applications, clients consistently asking about coupons and smaller product range. Eveything else is honestly tolerable. Gets a bit frustrating when clients question the store's authenticity.

    Advice to Management

    Keep in mind that your associates are in fact people. Some deal with coaching better than other. Never ask your team to partake in something that you personally wouldn't do. Using the build, tear, build techniques always helps when tough coaching is needed. Asking for feedback from the team often will also give great insight as to what they are feeling/ thinking!

    Interview

    It was fun. I had a blast and would do it again. It felt like your typical interview, they ask you the same questions that all companies do. How did you find out about us, why do you want to work for us, and so on and so forth.

  • Meet JCPenney CEO Marvin Ellison

    Marvin Ellison's story is classic J.C. Penney

    Marvin Ellison didn't start out in a cushy executive training program after his parents paid to send him to an elite college. No, Ellison has one of those other storybook backgrounds, the kind that inspire us to plant the American flag in our front yards on federal holidays.
